Bridgeton Covered Bridge today....

We ran by the Bridgeton Covered Bridge in Parke County this evening...Roger has went fishing this morning...he and a former boss met there and waded the creek. He could not wait to take me there.
The above is a normal summer scene...there are always pretty flowers planted.
And here we have the bridge and the dam.....notice no water coming OVER the dam....this is the first time we have ever seen it like this. I don't know if it has happened before and we just never caught it or if this is an actual first time...

Also, notice the bridge is repaired...go HERE to see what it looked like back the first of June after a tornado passed through there.
We both threw a line in the water a few times...Roger caught this small one this evening...I didn't catch anything here but had a couple hits....we went on to Mansfield where I caught one tiny Pumpkinseed bluegill...

Ohhh I remember that post when a tornado hit it... now it's been repaired! Niiice! =)

Did you see the video on CNN where a covered bridge, built in 1870 *gasp*, was washed away in Vermont during Irene? Horrible! You can hear a woman cry out in the background as it's being swept away... I teared up myself... I just hate to see a historical place disappear!

Love the bridge. It's so LONG!

I love these pictures and they tell a little story. When the sign says to cross at a walk, does that mean no vehicles? It was really damaged badly in your previous post, though you could see the full dam on that picture. They did a marvelous job of repairing it!

Neat bridge Rose...Love the fishing spot. Jim went fishing the other night and brought home two small trout, we had them for lunch the next day and boy were they good.

The repair of the bridge made it look good as new. A fine series of this beautiful bridge with the dam underneath.

Hi Rose, Love Covered Bridges. That one is awesome. I almost cried watching (TV) those old covered bridges in Vermont being washed away and destroyed by the flooding from the hurricane... That is history.. How SAD!!!!

Great pictures...
Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Rose, That's a great bridge and the water looks so refreshing. Come see me at my new blog, Mildred
Hope you have a nice weekend.

That's a beautiful bridge. You must be about as dry as we are since there's no water going over the dam.

I saw Tricia's comment. When I watched that on TV I was heart broken. I thought of you cause I know we both like the same things.
